Happy Birthday Dad

Today is my dear dads birthday. I bought some flowers to set on my desk for today.
My dad loved to work in the yard, planting, pruning, sprucing up his domain.

He would have been 76 years old today.

He was a true blue and proud Marine. 

I treasure these old photos of him.  



I always bought him a meaningful book, one that expressed my feelings for him.


He knew I would always write something in the front of the book, I am so glad my mother kept these for me after he went to heaven.


There are countless reasons why a daughter needs a dad


I am the most loved and valued daughter in the world because I was loved by the best father God ever made.

I emailed a friend of mine this week when I was feeling very sad, just missing him terribly and she comforted me with her kind words. She lovingly said that "it never gets easier but the spaces between the pain get longer". I agree and find such comfort when I can share my hurt with someone who knows exactly what you are feeling.

Happy Birthday in heaven my beloved dad.

I can tell Debbie that what you and your dad had was exceptional. Many people do not ever have that with a parent. I love that those books were saved for you. Thinking of you and hoping you are remembering the good times with him today. He wants you to be happy so tomorrow you do something warm and fun with your family. That is what your daddy would want.

What a kind tribute to your dad. I wish every little girl could have a dad like you did. My dad was wonderful too, and he also is in heaven.

I am grateful for men like your dad who served in the military. Our country should forever be grateful to these men.
